May 24, 2024 Dave Curl – Soulful singer-songwriter releases ‘Don’t Talk Anymore’ Single & Video

Dave Curl – Soulful singer-songwriter releases ‘Don’t Talk Anymore’ Single & Video

Independent Australian-Swiss singer-songwriter and producer Dave Curl releases his iconic single & video ’Don’t Talk Anymore’. He recently released a unique sophomore LP, Lockdown – Seven Nations, on February 23, 2024. Boasting over 1.5 million streams on Spotify, airplay on numerous indie radio stations in Germany and abroad. With performances in the respected Kulturkoller Club and around 20 other locations, Dave Curl has shown no signs of slowing down. The prolific performer has released nearly two dozen singles, two EPs, and the 2021 full-length album, Introducing. His newest project promises listeners an infectious and thought-provoking concoction of rock and roll.

With a glitchy introduction ‘Don’t Talk Anymore’ beckons the listener with bluesy guitar and an edgy bass line with a syncopated drum groove in a classic tone. Dave Curl offers up an electrifying rock track connected to the times. In the animated lyric video we are introduced to Dave in stillness, observing reality through virtually reality goggles. With scenes of life unfolding behind him, he identifies the indifference a tech-infused lifestyle creates.  

Dave Curl shared: Don’t Talk Anymore’ captures the modern epidemic of disconnection, as people immerse themselves in smartphones rather than meaningful conversation. Inspired by a train journey through the Italian part of Switzerland, Dave Curl was struck by the eerie silence of fellow passengers glued to their screens. Expecting lively chatter, he instead found an irritating scene of silence. This moment sparked the idea of ‘Don’t Talk Anymore’. The song serves as an ironic reminder of the importance of meaningful communication in an increasingly virtual world.

UK soul sensation Mikyla Cara shares feel-good anthem ‘if u don’t mind’

UK-based singer Mikyla Cara released her latest single, ‘If U Don’t Mind’, on April 26, 2024. With influences like Alicia Keys and Aretha Franklin, she’s firmly rooted in the neosoul/R&B genre. Since her debut EP Grown in January 2017, she’s built a notable career, including recent releases like ‘Thank You, Thank Me’ (2023) and the EP Feels Like A Break Up… (2023), featuring tracks supported by BBC Introducing and BBC 1Xtra. Mikyla collaborates with producer Scarz and performs internationally at venues like The Apollo Theatre in New York City and Studio 88 London.

Mikyla Cara taps into her neo soul and R&B inspirations to infuse ‘If You Don’t Mind’ with a classic feel, transporting listeners to the golden age of R&B, reminiscent of Alicia Keys at her peak. With its captivating melody and relatable lyrics, the song creates an immersive experience, inviting listeners to explore themes of love, self-discovery, and pure happiness.

Reflecting on her inspiration for the song, Mikyla shares: “I wanted to create a feel-good song that was reminiscent of old school R&B. The type of song you could vibe to on the way to get your morning coffee or sing along to at the top of your lungs at the nightclub“.

May 15, 2024 Natisya Kai – Nomadic soul and boundless musical spirit releases a wild & raw new single and video ‘Demons’.

Natisya Kai – Nomadic soul and boundless musical spirit releases a wild & raw new single and video ‘Demons’.

Emerging alt pop sensation Nastiya Kai shares another single and music video, ‘Demons’ via her imprint Nastiya Kai Music. The single offers a taste of what is to come with her debut album, Demon Era, slated for release on May 31st, 2024. Her recent singles garnered support from NOTION Magazine, CLASH Magazine, Wonderland Magazine and EARMILK as well as landing her an interview with Numéro and airplay on Flux FM. With her music accumulating more than 141 500 streams and counting, Nastiya Kai is carving a place for herself in pop’s prolific world, and she’s here to stay.

‘Demons’ is a glitchy and upbeat ode to the dizzying experience of bypassing somebody’s red flags as you fall in love with them. Nastiya Kai creates depth with catchy vocal layering coupled with an infectious dance pop beat, occasionally giving way to passages of haunting ambience. The accompanying video is a neon-clad chronicle of Nastiya and a lover, steamy yet tender and intimate, and at times painful.

Nastiya Kai shared: ’Demons’ is a love song, contrary to how it sounds. It’s about loving someone so

much you keep ignoring the red flags over and over again and at some point you stop fighting and just give in. It’s also about rushing into something without having the time to think things over so it’s a little more fast paced compared to most tracks on the album.”
